Hi!  I’m Dr. Steph

Child Psychologist and now … Parenting Coach

I help parents know when to step back and when to step in to raise resilient children.

Parents in our culture do not have a ‘village’ to advise them on childrearing. I want to share with parents the strategies and tools needed to raise healthy, resilient children.  Although parents may say they, ‘just want their kids to be happy,’ the truth is that no one can be happy without being able to weather the ups and downs that life throws at us. Resiliency is my goal for children. 

 I feel certain that lack of resiliency is a great contributor to the current mental health crisis in teens and young adults.  Resiliency is an attribute that can be cultivated at an early age to help children manage future challenges.  My mission is to help parents know when to step in and when to step back to raise resilient children.


I believe that teaching parents strategies to address their child’s challenges is the most powerful way to impact children’s lives and health.

To top off my child psychology training, I had children of my own. I was a stay-at-home mom for a while, and then worked while my kids were at school.  I lived with the everyday challenges and struggles of raising children. My children were different from each other. I had to use different strategies and mindsets to meet each of their needs.  My greatest challenges were in reining in my knee-jerk reactions and coming up with solutions that were helpful to both me and my kids. 

 I made my share of mistakes.  I persisted, though, to problem-solve and come up with better solutions.  My child psychology background helped me sift through the many child-rearing ideas out there to arrive at those that were grounded in solid psychological and developmental understanding.  I tried a variety of strategies.  I share the best strategies with the families I work with.
